8 things we learnt about Lockdown through the Memes/GIFs

    1. Your Sleeping pattern will cease to exist

4 AM is the new 11 PM. Sleeping before midnight is now an urban myth. You will get haunted by the Insomnia ghost and suddenly you have the urge to watch a movie, do a home manicure, go over your regrets from 2010 -2020 and watch videos of funny cats on YouTube.

2. On the other hand, you can’s stop sleeping. Waking up and every day turning out the same is getting boring real quick. Might as well lucid dream to get away from this shit.

3. “Don’t be a COVIDIODIOT” – Aka, stay indoors, stop having parties/gatherings, this is not the time to be social. So if Tyler wants to drop by the off license with 20 of his friends to pick up a multipack of Strongbow dark fruits to drink in the park together – SAY NO

4. It’s okay to feel burntout and lost right now and just wanting to crawl in your bed and play Animal Crossing and The Sims all day long. Don’t let those people who are pressuring you to upskill/apply to jobs/redecorate your house dictate your lockdown experience. Read that book you never got time to read. Play the video games gathering dust. Watch the movie.

5. I don’t know what it is but all of a sudden people are turning into Mary Berry and using this time to make all the crumbles/pies/pastries you can think of. It’s like a game of cat and mouse though everytime you go to the supermarket since flour is always missing. And toilet rolls. Which brings me to my next point.

6. Toilet paper nearly went extinct at one point. Some stupid people thought it was an apocalypse and not a pandemic and bought masses of toilet paper. You greedy fuckers there are lots of people who are struggling to find toilet paper because of you. I hope you all step on logo xoxox P.s. well done to those people who aren’t hogging toilet paper, this meme is for you!

7. Lockdown is weird. Without a purpose everyday begins to feel like Groundhog day. I can’t remember what the date is half the time. You just know this pandemic is going to be mentioned in future GCSE history exams.

One thing I have been grateful for during Lockdown has definitely been the memes and the overall humour of the situation. If I don’t laugh, I’ll cry.

What’s been the best meme you’ve seen during lockdown? Let me know x

Aloha! I thought I’d start 2020 with a ‘fun’ post on Instagram stereotypes. Before anyone who this post targets come for my neck, it’s a joke so live laugh love people.

VSCO Pro’s: Super chic with a capital C. Thinks the right filter makes the photo look deep. Favours a black and white cityscape. Wants to move to Paris,obviously. They won’t shut up about the fact they used Tumblr before it went mainstream.

Soft boys: Selfies with eccentric captions. Will comment on your photo with “👀”. Will take selfies while lighting a spliff incase no one knew he smoked weed. Shares his taste in music through Instastories repeatedly.

Influenzaaaas: Internet version of Influenza. Influencers will use the ‘gram to plug everything from hair extensions to weight loss drinks (judging you). Their selfies all look immaculate, they know how to werk that pose and their posts are glamorous but very dull. They probably order lemon and herb at Nandos. #cheekyspon

Huji girls: VSCO girls but less original. Incense and yoga and half lit photos with seductive hair and captions that have no relation to the post. Has at least two finstas and one of them is a poetry account. Carries around their polaroid everywhere.

Hard boys: Captions photos of their new whip with Drake lyrics. Always trying to rope you into a pyramid scheme. Will comment “👀” on your photos. Type to post a shirtess selfie and write a caption about the fact he’s done trusting people

Boomeranger: Self explanatory. Boomerangs favoured include: Bath bombs dropping into a bath, drinks clinking together, car radio, etc

Travel basics: They’re going away and they want you to know it. Their name written in sand with a heart? Tick. Unimaginitive airplane wing? Tick. Hot-dog legs at the beach? Another tick. A photo with a drugged tiger? Stop being basic and enjoy your holiday please x #CatchFlightsNotFeelings

Gym junkies: Viewing someone’s workout is like writing a grocery list. Everyone does it but no one cares to see yours. Or something. We think it’s great that you hit your targets !! But we don’t care. Put away the sweaty selfies please.

All About The Aesthetic: ThEy foLloW a ThEme. Favours instagram worthy shots of pastel paradise locations such as Élan cafe or Peggy Poschen. Think sugar, spice and all things nice.

12 things in my life scarier than your usual Halloween shit

1. Student debt – more than £30K worth. Can I get a hell yeah?

2. Couple costumes – No we don’t want to see you both dressed up in cutesy little matching Fred and Velma. It maketh me sicketh.

3. The term “slaps”. Like “this song really slaps”. It sounds like something your Dad would say while trying to sound cool.

4. My crippling depression. Yeah 🙂

5. The current USA gun crisis. I am fucking terrified.

6. Adulting. When does it start to feel natural? How do you do know if you’re doing it right? Can you return it without a receipt?

7. My bank account. All those minuses 😉

8. Jamie Oliver. NOTHING IS SACRED ANYMORE

9. My nightmares. Complex, scary shit that would send my dear Freud in a tizzy.

10. The term “Social media influencers”. Sounds a bit like brainwashers beaming hypnotic vibes out to us. You-must-buy-this-weightloss-milkshake

7 ways to procrastinate when you should be revising

So you’ve stumbled on this post telling you how to waste your life away doing something completely meaningless and you wish to know how to proceed? Stop what you’re doing right now and get back to work Look no further! Perksofbeingaprocrastinator takes you on a 7 step process: 

1. Food – Well you can’t revise when you’re hungry right? What if you pass out…or something? Go and grab something to eat! To be on the safe side, you should keep eating until you can’t feel your stomach. Better to be safe than sorry, who knows what a lack of sugar could do your brain. Pick up that chocolate bar kid…and pick up two more.

2. YouTube Videos – You can’t start revision until you’re emotionally ready and willing. What better way to ensure that then some good old fashioned YouTube Videos? My personal favourites are Dan&Phil, Emma Blackery, Superwoman etc. Keep going until you’ve seen all their videos back to back!

3. Tidy desk – Cluttered workplace = Cluttered mind. Do you think Einstein became a genius living in a pigsty? The answer is no! You need to make sure your desk/table/whatever is tidy and clutter free. You also need to organise and colour code all your pens, line your books up in alphabetical order and just generally make sure your work space is clean and has you geared up for some efficient revision! Repeat decluttering process 3X for maximum results.

4. Take breaks – That super annoying girl who gets straight A’s in your Biology class didn’t revise seven hours a day non stop! She made sure she took several breaks so the information processed in her head and she didn’t feel like she was going to burn out. That means you should probably follow suit and take plenty of breaks too. Long, three day minimum breaks.

5. Go for walks – Fresh air and a nice brisk walk is just what the doctor prescribed for exam period which reduces most of us to extreme stress cases. To ensure you get enough exercise and a break from looking at your books 24/7 make sure your walk lasts a decent amount. Let’s say a couple of hours. Try and throw in a shopping trip as well just in case you don’t feel ready to return home.

6. Paint your nails – Extremely therapeutic. Nuff’ said

7. Sleep – Goes without saying that you should be getting that necessary twelve hour sleeping period so you don’t wake up feeling like a zombie when you should have ideally have a fresh mind for revision. Oh and two hour naps twice a day are also essential. Can’t have you falling asleep on your maths book can we?
